Open Quote I am a current student and I have attended 2 other schools due to family movement, and this is the most rigorous and brightest school system with the smartest people. I would not wish to go to any other school in the area, or anywhere, for that matter. GO RAIDERS!!!!! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
